Gun Control Ad Starring Gabrielle Giffords to Air Before State of the Union
Breitbart ^ | Jan. 27, 2014 | AWR Hawkins

Posted on 01/28/2014 5:11:06 AM PST by PROCON

In a commercial set to run just before and after President Obama's January 28 State of the Union (SOTU) address, Gabrielle Giffords looks into the camera and says, "Congress is afraid of the gun lobby." According to the Associated Press , Giffords will push background checks as a way to "make it harder for criminals and the mentally ill to get guns." She will say, "9 out of 10 Americans support background checks."

On December 4, Breitbart News reported a CNN poll that showed "50 percent of Americans oppose more gun control," and only "49 percent" support it.

Breitbart News also reported those who killed innocents at the Mall in Columbia, Arapahoe High School, the DC Navy Yard, LAX, and the Aurora Theater, would not have been stopped by background checks because they all submitted to background checks to acquire their firearms.

BINGO, STFU Gabby!

Wonder how much Goofy Giffords was paid for the acting?

Is she a Union actor?

Few will see the commercial. This will be the lowest viewed SOTU in history.

Dang. Two horror shows I’ll miss. Darn the luck. Will mx. mark kelley-giffords have his shoulder length glove on? I’ll have to see if there are any reruns of Kukla, Fran and Ollie on. At least it was an enjoyable puppet show. :>}

Because of the Second Amendment, I don’t support background checks for guns but I do support background checks for knives and hammers and other blunt and sharp objects.

Oh. And I also support background checks for shopping carts. For the children.

So what? Not going to be much of an audience watching. True believers will watch, but the rest of us have no reason to waste our time while a narcissist lies to us.

As for congress being afraid of the gun lobby. ... You're {expletive} right they are afraid of us! We have the US Constitution on our side and the means to defend it from their plans and desires.

The only ones viewing this catastrophe will be left wing loons, eager for more BS. Nobody is “on the fence” about this “guy”. This will be the lowest rated SOTU in history.

Make an ad showing...

all the mass shooters in the last 30 years have been democrats or children of democrats. And all of them were on prescribed drugs...

The question? "What should be 'banned?"

She will say, "9 out of 10 Americans support background checks."

Yet 5 out of 10 don't seem to understand that you already have to get a background check if you purchase from a dealer, and that by "universal background check" the Demolshoviks mean total governmental control of all person to person sales/gifts, registration, and of course confiscation.

This really is GOOD NEWS in a sense. This will very likely be the LEAST WATCHED of the Clown’s Sham-Wow shows....

So they are really wasting money....This doesn’t persuade or convince anyone.

The real problem is that the networks are so perverted that they give only one point of view an unencumbered chance to speak....in their newscasts AND commercials.....that point of view is LIBERALISM.

The same people who push more background checks (a way to make a list of people they don’t like) don’t even wish to have IDs required for voters. In the long run, a dumb liberal voter is much more dangerous than a person who owns a gun.

State of the Union has turned into an infomercial, anyway. They should put Don Lapre and his “tiny little classified ads” in the Vice President’s seat behind Obama, and the guy that uses flex seal on the screen door on the bottom of that boat in the Speaker’s seat.

Seems like a total waste of money. The only people who will tune in to watch the Liar in Chief are folks who don’t need convincing anyway. ha ha

if you can show me a system of background checks that is free, available to anyone, and cannot lead to registration, then lets’ talk. otherwise no.

Hey Gabby, Crawl into a Hole! Your fifteen minutes of using victim as a political
tool is over, and you've become the new Useful Idiot Tool of the Democrat party.

Real Americans no longer feel sorry for your pain when you come to us saying
that we cannot as a legal citizens own a firearm. 2nd Amendment.

And it was All Dem supporters who were doing the killing. How about we
strip Democrats from having guns because they all have your brain damage.

She will say, "9 out of 10 Americans support background checks."

Yeah, but the real question is, how was the question asked? Actually there are (at least) 3 problems with this.

One, as with any poll you can get the numbers you want by carefully crafting the question.

Two, most people who only get their information from the MSM believe there is this thing called a "gun show loophole." Even worse, they have no first hand experience with firearms or the firearms purchasing process. If they did, they would know we already have background checks! Duh!

Three, what they mean by "background checks" but almost certainly didn't ask specifically about (see #1 above) is "universal background checks." Which sounds hunky-dory but is worse than worthless. That notion would require a background check on all private firearms sales - not just sales from licensed dealers.

If you (lib lurkers) believe that would stop illegal firearms purchases you are stupid and naive. Yes that is mean, but true. If someone could pass a background check they would, and they'd buy a firearm from a licensed dealer rather than take the risk and pay the premium for getting one on the black market. But they can't, so they won't purchase from someone (commercial or private) that is going to require a background check.

If you think universal background checks will stop illegal arms sales you are a fool. Do you believe that passing a law requiring all private drug sales take place at a pharmacy with a Doctor's prescription would stop illegal drug sales? The notion of "universal background checks" is every bit as laughably stupid.

I don’t think you read my post, you meant to respond to someone else, or you didn’t catch that the italics is from the article, and what I was commenting on.

I’m curious as hell to know what I posted that was “lib lurker” worthy.

Oh no, I’m sorry, I wasn’t implying you were a lib lurker! I was adding on, piling on, on the italicized comment. I agree with you. Sorry for the confusion. I should be clearer on that, my fault.
